Sony showed the solid-state compact camcorder PMW-EX1 for the first time.

The Sony PMW-EX1's highlight is that it records and stores content to ExpressCard high-speed media, offering greater workflow flexibility with selectable bit rates in addition to an extensive list of editing and effects capabilities. The camera uses Sony’s newly developed SxS PRO™ solid-state memory as its recording medium. The SxS memory card, which currently delivers up to 800 Mbps of high-speed data transfer, enables non-linear capabilities like instant random access and file-based operation.
Equipped with two SxS memory card slots, the camcorder can record up to 100 minutes of high-quality HD footage at 35Mbps, or 140 minutes at 25Mbps using two 16-GB SxS memory cards.

The imaging devices used in the camcorder are three newly designed 1/2-inch type Exmor™ CMOS sensors, each with an effective pixel count of 1920 x 1080. This 1/2-inch type image sensor, allows the camcorder to provide an extremely high sensitivity of F10, a signal-to-noise ratio of 54 dB, and horizontal resolution of 1000 television lines.

The PMW-EX1 camcorder is expected to be available in November at a suggested price of less than $8,000.
